Wildheart are back with ‘False Hope / Fake Happiness’

9 Jul, 2021

Aussie band, Wildheart, release another hard-hitting track in the wake of April’s ‘Backburner’. ‘False Hope / Fake Happiness’ channels more of the melodic urgency we’ve seen in previous singles.

Vocalist Axel Best says that this new single and video False Hope / Fake Happiness “…takes a slight deviation from the more politically driven nature of Wildheart’s latest releases Rising Tide and Backburner, and turns to a more insightful but equally anti-capitalist look at how we, particularly in western society have become so dependant on material gains in order to achieve a sense of self worth and value. Could we learn to be happy with who we are, or just fill the pockets of those who tell us we’re not?”

“People are unfortunately roped into this system and while we have a very long way to go until we see any form of true equality where people aren’t simply slaving away to make someone else rich, on an individual basis we can really look at what we should be investing our time and energy into. This song asks the question ‘Are you really full and happy or just happy to be full?’ We definitely don’t have all the answers but we know that we are not meant to spend all our time working ourselves to an early grave.”
